 MORE? How about this new program....
 Got seeds?  It’s time to start thinking about planting.
This year, the Hubbard Public Library is holding a seed swap, an opportunity for you to try growing something new or different, from other gardener’s saved seed.  During the last two weeks of February, the library will have a seed display for all our local seedgeeks – bring in any extra seed left from your last two gardening  years.  Flower seeds as well as vegetable seeds are welcome.  A volunteer will organize the seed you bring – please label your seeds clearly, it is especially useful if you know both the common and the botanical names.  Then the first two weeks in March, come back in to see what was donated, and see what you might want to sample for your 2012 garden.  This could be the first of an annual event – let’s see what we can grow!

WHEW!! That's a lot going on in February!  Hope to see you soon!
